Trump Says ‘No’ National Lockdown, Doesn’t Believe It Will Ever Be Necessary

Published

on

President Trump recently stated during a press conference that a national lockdown would not likely ever be necessary to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, news which should be sweet, sweet music to those of us who love and enjoy our freedom.

Trump updated reporters and officials during a briefing held on Friday. The president said that after both California and New York have implemented strict regulations designed to stop the spread of the virus, he did not see the need for a nation-wide lockdown like the kind we’ve seen in China and Italy.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“I don’t think so,” Trump said when asked if he thought a national lockdown would be needed. “Essentially, you’ve done that in California, you’ve done that in New York. Those are two really hot beds. Those are probably the two hottest of them all in terms of hotspots.

“You go out to the Midwest, you go out to other locations and they are watching it on television but they dont have the same problems,” Trump continued. “So no, we are working with the governors and I don’t think we’ll ever find that necessary.”

Moments before, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top immunologist, praised the residents of California and New York for their sacrifice and said that the strict regulations put in place by the state governments were appropriate and necessary.

This is very good news, which should do wonders in lifting the spirits of those who have been diligent in practicing social distancing as a means of helping to flatten the curve of the spread of the disease.

The two main concerns about the virus are that it could spread to those who are elderly and immunocompromised and that patients with the illness could overload our healthcare system.

That’s why it’s so critical to “flatten the curve.”

Fortunately, it seems as though our efforts to do this are paying off, slowly but surely.

Save conservative media!

Gretchen Whitmer Takes Heat For Marching With Protesters After Months Of Cracking Down With Social Distancing Orders

Published

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is taking a whole lot of heat after she decided to violate her own lockdown orders in order to march shoulder-to-shoulder with protesters in a march to support George Floyd who was killed at the hands of a law enforcement officer in Minneapolis. Whitmer was photographed participating in the event, sitting side-by-side with activists who were demanding that police brutality be brought to an end. The photograph has angered many residents, along with GOP Rep. Lynn Afendoulis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Social distancing is critical to stop the spread of COVID-19—unless you have a great photo op. ⁦And control,” Afendoulis tweeted. https://twitter.com/LynnAfendoulis/status/1268623499142279168 Whitmer maintained some of the strictest social distancing guidelines in the nation throughout the coronavirus pandemic, many of which are still in effect — including a mandate to maintain 6 feet of separation in public gatherings. A spokeswoman for Whitmer, Tiffany Brown, denied the governor violated her own social distancing guidelines by attending the protests. “The governor took precautions for engaging in an outdoor activity, including wearing a mask even though it is not required outdoors under the order,” Brown told the Detroit News. She also noted that the order included a provision that said: “Nothing in this order shall be taken to abridge protections guaranteed by the state or federal constitution.” Brown went on to add that “includes the right to peaceful protest. The state’s website has a FAQ section that says any protest requires participants to be six feet apart as per the usual social distancing guidelines. “Persons may engage in expressive activities protected by the First Amendment within the State of Michigan but must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the…

Stacey Abrams Says She’s Not Joined In Protesting So As Not To ‘Distract From Their Message’

Published

on

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams came out and stated that she’s not joined in the protests happening across her state because she’s afraid her presence will distract from the message being pushed by those who are putting on these events. Abrams, who failed to win the governorship of Georgia, appeared on CNN where she revealed the reason for her absence during an interview. “I appreciate the instinct of leaders to join in these protests, but too often, our presence distracts from their message,” she said. Reports indicate that Abrams is actually on the short list of potential vice president candidates for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. Abrams did reveal that she’s helping the movement responsible for the protests by helping to secure money for bail and lawyers for those who are arrested. “I understand the instinct to be there. But having been on the other side, having been an activist and a protester, I have a very visceral reaction, and my conscience tells me I need to stay out of the way and let the attention focus on the demonstrators,” Abrams added. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: As a college student, Abrams helped lead protests after Los Angeles police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King, a black construction worker, in 1992. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died last week after a white police officer in Minneapolis pressed a knee to his neck for more than nine minutes. Floyd lost consciousness and was later pronounced dead at a hospital. It seems more likely that Abrams is just trying to keep herself out of trouble by not joining in on the protests. However, she’s definitely doing her part to keep the unruly chaos active by bailing out criminals and vandals, so perhaps it’s best she not show up…
